Local Government Reform

Changes are afoot. Proposals are emerging to create a Unitary Authority or two in Warwickshire, to cover the services currently provided by Warwickshire County Council, Stratford District Council, and four other district and borough councils. WCC favour a single Unitary Authority for the whole county. The five district and borough councils favour two Unitary Authorities, one for North Warwickshire and one for South Warwickshire.

As part of these changes it is proposed to offer parishes the opportunity to take on certain services currently provided at a higher level. We are promised that new responsibilities will not be forced upon parishes, and that double devolution as they call it will only happen where parishes request it. Lighthorne Parish Council is keeping an open mind, but given that we are currently 33% under strength in councillors we may not be rushing to take on more responsibility.

You can read more about Local Government Reform in Warwickshire on the Warwickshire County Council web site.

Parish Council newsletters

From late 2020 the Parish Council have resolved to publish quarterly updates in the Parish Magazine rather than an annual newsletter. We are pleased to support the Parish Magazine and hope that the well established delivery network will help us to reach more parishioners, especially those without access to the internet. Historical newsletter are linked below.
